Travel Nurses Subsidize National Nursing Shortage

Throughout the pandemic, nursing shortages have increased throughout the country. This has caused a major demand for travel nurses to fill these shortages. Travel nurses are currently among the highest-paid professions in the healthcare/medical industry, sometimes even making more than surgeons (according to Insider).

Taking a Toll

As more variants of COVID-19 become rampant, increased hospitalizations have caused hospitals and states to feel the nursing shortage all across the nation. Some nurses have even left their positions to pursue higher-paying jobs as travel nurses or leave their profession altogether. But each time a nurse leaves their profession, the remaining hospital staff find themselves even further stretched out than before.
